get them all to vote for a deal. >> mitch mcconnell could be in the middle. >> what is governor romney wins the presidency than a? >> i think if he wins, they do call the whole thing off. it is very hard to argue that he does not deserve the right to have his own budget. you will do that and the first few months of 2013. it is hard to imagine a bunch of democrats and president obama falling on their swords for something of the new president could just reverse. >> speaking of budgets -- what is this book? >> inside the high-stakes politics of the federal budget. a book that people who note that the budget and the deficit are important but have never managed to read on this subject. >> thank you. >> you can see newsmakers again tonight at 6:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. george mcgovern, former south dakota rep and senator, in 1972 presidential candidate died this morning. he was in world war two and was later a local critic of the vietnam war. he served three terms in the united states senate. after being first elected in 1962. ran for president three times and was defeated by richard nixon
: i don't think it was a coincidence that during the foreign policy debate, mitt romney kept bringing it back to the economy. most people turning in were not going to be paying that close attention to some of the foreign policy issues, and i don't think many \ voters go to the polls to vote based on what our decisions will be with china or cuba, for that matter. but they do vote with their pocketbooks. statewide unemployment in florida is 8.7%, but it is much higher in various pockets of florida. in some counties, as high as 12% unemployment. as we all know, that does not talk about the under-employed. the economy is still struggling in florida. we have signs of it getting better, but i heard a story that foreclosures in the state are the highest in the nation. there's a lot of economic pressure in the state. people are feeling the pain, and whoever sells the economic message best is going to do well in this state. i should add that the republican party in the state is very strong. >> they not only have the governor's office and three cabinet offices, but the state democratic party is
like they should. mitt romney and i are running because we believe americans are better off in a dynamic free enterprise based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity come and upward mobility is of a government- directed stance that creates dependency. [applause] you know there's something wrong in our country when 40% of children born to parents in the lowest fifth of earners never know anything better. the question before us today demands a serious answer. how do we get the engines of opera mobility turned back on so that no one is left out of the promise of america? to answer that, we have to take a hard look at the approach the government has been taking for the last five decades and ask yourself if it's working. the approach has been to spend lots of money on anti-poverty programs. the money behind this approach is that a nation should measure compassion by the size of the government and how much it spends. the problem is, starting in the 1960's, this top-down approach created a debilitating culture of dependency wrecking communities. this was so obvious to ev

comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate where he talked about his destroyer to hire a lot of women, that's kind -- it's not helping him, and i think that's reflected in the poll numbers, because you're seeing right now, romney is it tied or seems to have kind of a momentum, i guess, moving into the final week and that's what pollsters are saying. i think that democrats feel that this will help, particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority of the electorate, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away some things that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party electorate, which in a very close election, can be really critical. >> susan of the washington examiner, neil of roll call, thank you both for being with us on news makers for this sunday. it's interesting that we as a society have given our information out. >> we were looking in to cyber and cyber security and cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of

, that the people who ran against mitt romney were not really fond of him still, even at the convention. >>>> we had boehner saying i ner read those platforms. this is after the convention. he said you are going to get at all on one page. nobody reads the the platform. >> we did. what a waste of time. >> what can we look for in the next two weeks between now and election day? what do you anticipate? >> fasten your seat belt. you have seen some of the silly rhetoric we will get for the next two weeks, but more than that, what you are not seeing is what is going on, and that is those get out the vote efforts, and those are the most intense things. both these campaigns are doing year oldsave these 14- talking to their friends on the social network, so there is a lot of stuff going out there that is not apt -- obvious to the camera's eye, and that is read the election is. this has always been a base election. it has always come down to this. whose base is more excited? who will get their people out president obama at a storybook turnout and election team. i do not know if it is there, because they are d
quite a flurry of candidate visits in the next week. joe biden is here today. mitt romney will be your mind a bit president obama will be here tuesday. paul ryan will be here on wednesday. host: how much of it comes from the ripple effect of gov. walker? guest: there has been an interesting debate over what the recall told us about the presidential election. you could overstate the implications in some ways because the recall by definition is a pretty extraordinary event and it was pretty clear in the recall fight back some voters were voting against the recall process. they did not think it was appropriate. you had about between 15 and 20% of the people that voted for republican scott walker said they favored barack obama for president. in the polling, every couple of weeks throughout the year, it has been pretty consistent that about one-tenth of the electorate, nine or 10% of voters said they approve of both republican governor and democratic president. the recall was not a perfect barometer, but that tells you that republicans have had a lot of success winning elections in wisconsi
a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can be really critical. host: thank you both for being with us on this news maker for this sunday. >> watch our newsmakers with rande paul again today at 6:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. now watch our coverage of the presidential candidates, plus races from around the country. next on c-span, a third party presidential debate moderated by larry king, followed by the final presidential debate on foreign policy. and later, former g nor
. the closest romney got was within a tie. democrats have a voter registration advantage in this state. host: going back to to thousand a, i want to talk about -- to 2008 statistics, from bloomberg news says nevada has the largest swing state demographic shift since 2008. talk about how that is impacting this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop comme

grudgingly supporting mitt romney and that is it. there are lots of -- there is a lot of talk about swing states, those numbers have been the same way. in colorado our latest polling shows barack obama down by four points. these numbers are moving in similar fashion across most of the states, with one big exception, ohio. in a high of the numbers show that it is 48-48. there is great enthusiasm from republican voters across the country. the democrats appear to have a stronger ground game and we are seeing that especially in ohio. before we get into all of that, we have two guests and they've both say they have said things they regret they have informed me that is not accurate. governor rendell is someone who speaks his mind freely on nbc and obviously served as governor of the great state of pennsylvania. i want to start by asking them about their home states. can mitt romney win? >> i would say yes the pennsylvania is in play. and i would say that it is probably the best bellwether of what happened over the last three weeks. the their campaign is particularly active in a pennsylvan

enough. and i don't know how many dead children it would take to satisfy mitt romney and the republicans. guest: talk to us about the effects as you see them of third party candidates on the republican effort in north carolina. guest: right now from what we're seeing it doesn't look like it's having an impact. to the extent they are drawing folks out it's from both parties and doesn't look like it's going to impact the presidential race or other races where libertarians are running. host: we've got a tweet -- guest: i'm not sure what to make of that. we certainly have our issues but the fact is that this is a state that traditionally has gone for republican nominees for president and i believe we're going to return to that in 2012. host: next up is rich on our republican line. caller: thanks for taking my call. last night i was watching the news and they were talking about the cast of electoral votes and they were talking about the possibility that the electoral votes could wide up high and the house would elect romney as the president and the senate would elect biden as the vice preside
romney has called for $5 trillion of tax cuts that he says he will pay for by closing deductions. the math does not work, but he claims he will do it. he wants to spend $2 trillion on military spending that our military is not asking for. our military spending has gone up every single year since i have been in office. we spend more on their military and the next 10 countries combined. china, france, the night kingdom, you name it. we need to work with their joint chiefs of staff to think about, what are we going to need in the future to make sure we are safe? that is the budget we put forward. what you cannot do is spend $2 trillion in additional military spending that the military is not asking for, $5 trillion on tax cuts. you say you will pay for this by cutting loopholes and deductions without naming what those loopholes and deductions are. you are somehow going to do with the deficit that we have the math simply does not work. when it comes to our military,what we have to think about is not just budgets, we have got to think about capabilities. we need to be think about cybe
mitt romney in the republicans' blood lust. >> gideon moore in mecklenberg county, talk to us about the effects as you see them of third party candidates on the republican effort in north carolina. >> right now from what we are seeing, it doesn't look like it's having an impact. to the extent they are drawing folks out, folks being drawn from both republican and democrat party and doesn't look like it will impact either the presidential race or any of our other gubernatorial races. >> we've got a tweet from john in north carolina, who writes under the handle affirmatively. john writes, north carolina doesn't have large failed cities of crackheads and gangbangers and thus rarely votes for the democrat nominee. gideon moore? >> i'm not sure what to make of that. we certainly have our issues. the fact is that this is a state that traditionally has republican nominees for president and i believe we will return to that in 2012. >> next up is rich in centreville, virginia, on our line for republicans government ahead, rich. >> thanks for taking my call. last night i was watching i think n
that will at secrete middle-class security. and like mitt romney, i am proud to talk about what is in my plan. it actually adds up. if you want to check it out, go to barackobama.com/plans. are it with friends. share it with co-workers. there's people out there trying to make up their mind. some of you may be trying to make up your mind. somebody may have dragged you heare. maybe your girlfriend said you have to come to the rally. i want you to compare my plan to governor romney's. see which plan you think is better for you. see which plan is better for america's future. look, i want to end tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas but also want to reward those to create jobs right here in the united states. i want to cut our oil imports in half by 2020. we will develop traditional sources of energy. today we are less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the past two decades. it is not enough just to produce more oil and natural gas. we also increased fuel standards. your car will go farther on a gallon of gas. i want to build on the progress we have made doubling clean energy. i
president barack obama and governor mitt romney. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] >> gentlemen, your campaigns have agreed to certain rules and they are simple. they asked me to divide the evening into segments. i'll pose a question at the beginning of each segment. you will each have two minutes to respond, and then we will have a general discussion until we move to the next segment. tonight's debate, as both of you know, comes on the 50th anniversary of the night that president kennedy told the world that the soviet union had installed nuclear missiles in cuba, perhaps the closest we've ever come to nuclear war. and it is a sobering reminder that every president faces at some point an unexpected threat to our national security from abroad. so let's begin. the first segment is the challenge of a changing middle east and the new face of terrorism. i'm going to put this in two segments so you'll have two topic questions within this one segment on the subject. the first question, and it concerns libya, the controversy over what happened there continues for americans are dead, inc
of poor who demanded these entitlement programs. we saw that from mitt romney's 47% comments. the sense that the american dream is dying because people have demanded entitlement programs that sapped the will to work, that are basically in a sense pushing away that ladder emily was talking about. who is evil in the tea party moral -? -- moral narrative? >> it goes to your point about actions and consequences should be correlated so that if you make good decisions and you work hard, you are rewarded and if you make bad decisions and do not work as hard, you are not rewarded. that, i think, for the tea party especially, was the bad guy. it is debatable who was to be included, but with the onset of the financial crisis, bailouts of banks, bailouts for car companies, homeowners facing foreclosures, stimulus -- assistance for home owners facing foreclosures, stimulus -- all of these undermine their moral idea of proportionality, which is essential to what i was talking about as their idea of the american dream. they think proportionality is absolutely essential for people to have the freedom
on a four hundred mile bus tour. we showed you heard it -- showed you his appearance earlier. mitt romney has canceled a number of events tomorrow and is instead campaigning in ohio with paul ryan. on monday, obama will head to the florida institute of technology. in about half an hour, we will take you live to lynchburg for the event with vice-president joe biden and his wife. until then, a look at the battleground state of north carolina from this morning's "washington journal. tell us what makes north carolina battleground state. guest: traditionally, it has been a red state. it is moving more and more into a competitive state, and there are several reasons why. one of the things our organization does is ask every year the voters where they stand in terms of conservative level. only florida and virginia, in terms of southern states, are to the left, so it is pretty divided. it also has political progressives, so it has been pretty much a modern state traditionally. there has been a tremendous influx of people from around the country. particularly in the big metropolitan areas, and none
do we need to do? well, we've got mitt romney who was a job creator. the most important moral issue is job creation. when people work, moms and dads are happier, their marriages are better and their children do better. when mom and dad are out of work, is the children that suffer. mom and dad are not as strong as when things are going better. that is the moral issue. and mitt romney is a job creator. that is what he did all his life. then he became a governor and he inherited a state with the deficits were high, people were out of work. when he left, what was the story? he balanced the budget, ran a surplus, and the people back to work. and then i think you saw with one of these videos about the olympics. that is leadership. you go out there, the thing is a mess and you turn it around because you are a leader. that is why it is so important we elect romney, because it is these kids' future that is at stake. it is the strength of the family that is at stake. now, i have to tell you, i have been referring to paul ryan as the paul revere of the next generation, ok? i've known paul ryan
